“PRINCE WILLIAM HAS ASKED ME TO BE GODFATHER TO HIS SON,” THE MOST ELIGIBLE BACHELOR IN THE WORLD

His name is Hugh Grosvenor. He is only 27 years old and his fortune exceeds $ 14 billion. And that makes him the richest man in the world under the age of 30 years. He’s single and, therefore, is the most eligible bachelor in the world.

INTERVIEW:

Your grace, allow me to congratulate you on the opening of a new National rehabilitation centre for the military. You have done so much for this project.
Thank you very much, but my role in the implementation of this idea very modest. I just finished what dad started. Unfortunately, he did not live to see the day of the opening of the center, but I am sure that his soul was present at the ceremony. I felt it.

They say that the construction cost of 300 million pounds. This is 400 million dollars! Who has allocated so much money?
Center built solely on private donations. The state was not required to allocate a single penny. My father took care of the creation of a special Fund. He has personally invested the most money — £ 50 million (65.6 million dollars. — Ed.). I, as head of the family, added another 20 million pounds (26.2 million dollars. — Ed.). I heard that our Foundation has collected the largest amount in the history of the UK. But that was not an end in itself. The father wanted that it was a modern rehabilitation centre for servicemen — with the world’s best equipment, best doctors and facilities for those who will now return here to normal life after wounds and injuries. I am sure that no noble goals, and there is no better project for donations.


The rest of the interview can be found here https://bobrtimes.com/prince-william...-photos/82102/

Where was this interview at? If you've copied and pasted over 20% of the interview from a publication, it may infringe on the publication's copyright. That's why you'll mostly see a link posted to a article or an interview here with just a short synopsis of what information is contained.

Their intention is enable the eldest child to inherit the title [regardless of gender] following the example of the royal family.

This is likely to prove VERY 'tricky' since the VAST majority of Peerages in existence were created [expressly and individually, in some cases HUNDREDS of years ago] to descend to 'heirs male of the body'.

Additionally [and perhaps] FAR more controversially, [since HMQ is the 'fount of ALL Honours' in the UK], if the case were to succeed effectively it would create legal precedent for a foreign Court to have jurisdiction over our Head of State.

Regardless of the merits of the case, this [in the era of Brexit] will not be popular or unchallenged.

2. Most hereditary titles, like Duke or Earl, can only be inherited by male children. Do you think most hereditary titles should continue to only descend through male children, or should female children have the same right to inherit them?

10% Most titles should continue to only be inherited by male children
71% Female children should have the same right to inherit titles
19% Don't know



Views vary substantially by age, gender, and political party, but are more even across region and social grade.

Only 65% of those ages 18 to 24 say female children should have the same right to inherit titles, compared to 75% of those age 50 and older.

Only 64% of men say female children should have the same right to inherit titles, compared to 79% of women.

Liberal Democrats are the most likely to say that female children should have the same right to inherit titles (82%), followed by Labour (76%), the SNP (74%), Conservatives (69%), and UKIP (51%).

Daughters' Rights update

Quote:
We have been bolstered by endorsements from The Fawcett Society, the leading campaigners for gender equality and women's rights and 50:50Parliament, whose purpose is to get more women elected to parliament.

Several peers, both hereditary and life peers across all parties sitting in the House of Lords, have put their heads above the parapet including Baroness Deech, Visount Simon, Lord Lucas, Baroness Lane Fox, Viscount Ridley, Lord Clement Jones and Baroness Rawlings.
Are any of these endorsements interesting, or were they all expected?

Quote:
The Standing Council of the Baronetage have asked positively for details of the campaign to discuss at their Executive Committee, which is encouraging.
Quote:
In the next few weeks we should hear that the government have been formally advised of our case and know what their response is.

1. Given that the eventual court case regards the end of male primogeniture in the succession to peerage titles I don't see why a member of a family holding a baronetecy is taking part. A baronet is not a peer.
2. They'd better hurry up. The Tories have stated their to replace the European Convention on Human Rights with a British Bill of Rights after Brexit so the ladies could find that a positive verdict would have no validity anyway. A decision isn't binding even if the ECHR maintains it's jurisdiction over the UK at the time of the verdict although the British courts according to the Human Rights Act must take into account it's verdicts, decisions, declarations & advisory opinions.
Whatever the case I doubt that neither the Government nor the Parliament will be happy to implement the decision of a foreign court on a question regarding the governance of the country itself.
